Hello there! My name is Yuhui and I am a first year Computer Science student at the University of Waterloo.

Back in Richmond Secondary School, I taught game development with Unity in the Computer Science Club as the president and co-founder. I also led a school organization ColtsMedia, for which I completed a large software development on RHS Colts, which spans iOS, Android, and Web Full Stack.

After the two-month studies at Stanford University in 2014, I started working at 14 Oranges Software Inc. as a Software Developer Intern for two years, focusing on iOS, web, and cross-platform solutions.

Now I have begun a new journey at University of Waterloo, studying Computer Science with the option in Software Engineering and a minor in Combinatorics and Optimization. I love to learn the latest technologies and to apply them in many of my projects.

As an iOS developer, I have won the BCSSA & Apple Canada Technology Scholarship of 2014 for my iChronotable app, Apple WWDC Scholarship in 2015, and Apple WWDC Scholarship in 2016.

In September 2017, I will be joining A Thinking Ape as a Software Development Engineer Co-op.

WWDC 2016

One of the 350 scholarship recipients globally and a second-time winner, I attended Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in 2016. During the week, not only did I meet many more developers from around the world, as well as Apple engineers and Developer Relations, but I have also reconnected with friends from last year's conference. The project I submitted for scholarship evaluation was RHS Colts.

WWDC 2015

One of the 350 scholarship recipients globally, I attended Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in 2015. It had been a great week talking to many Apple Engineers and other developers, especially the scholarship recipients. UI Lab gave me an array of design tips and improvements on my apps that I'll be applying to future releases including RHS Colts.

Stanford University

Continuing to pursue Computer Science, I attended Stanford Summer College in Summer 2014 to study Computer Science (CS106B) and Electrical Engineering (EE47). It was a valuable experience during which I was able, for the first time, to learn to write code professionally, both algorithmically and aesthetically.

Stanford is located near silicon valley. I was able to visit Computer History Museum, Intel Museum, The Tech Museum of Innovation, and most importantly Apple Headquarter at Cupertino.
